**Currently accepting new students of all ages and instruments.**(8/9/17)

As a professional brass musician, I have been teaching brass instruments for over ten years.

For the beginner level, I have introduced many students to their first instrument ensuring that fundamentals are in place. At the intermediate level, I have helped many students advance in competitions and seat assignments within their band program. As a collegiate educator, I have given masterclasses at universities and private lessons to music performance students preparing for auditions and solo recitals.

I have taught online lessons for over four years and have used multiple online communication platforms to teach effective lessons. My students truly enjoy the online interaction during their lessons.

I have taught a wide variety of ages - everyone from 10 years old to 65 years old. One of the great joys I have in teaching is that each student brings their own unique strengths to a lessons. My goal is ...

My son has been taking lessons for a few weeks now and I can say that this has been a very good decision for us. Jeremy is easygoing and patient. My son enjoys the lessons and taking them via Skype is super easy. If low brass is your thing, Jeremy is your teacher.

Jonathan is an excellent instructor. My lessons were scheduled in the evenings and he accommodated my busy work schedule. He presented the lessons clearly; he adapted my lesson to my learning style and never forced me into just 1 style of learning. He also gave me a lesson manual and discussed alternative ways of practicing at home. Joanathan is extremely knowledgeable, I would recommend him to anyone looking to learn violin.

I was homeschooled all of my life up to freshman year of high school. I knew how to play the drum set by teaching myself so I played along with songs and just did what felt right. I joined band freshman year under the direction of Jayme. I had never ever read any kind of music or rhythms or anything. By senior i had qualified for two 1's at state solos, a 1 for a state percussion trio, District Symphonic band, and colleges offering me scholarships.

One year later of her teaching and I made it into the SCKMEA District Band. Two years later I made it into the Kansas State 1234A Band two years in a row. I could never have accomplished making it into these bands and more without the help of Jayme. She is a great, caring person who really puts her all into music and you personally. I highly recommend working with her in her studio!

Take lessons with a experienced teacher that actively performs and teaches. What makes me a good teacher is the fact that I struggled during the first few years that I started playing. I had a work through those struggles in order to become the musician I am today, so I know how to break things down and to cater lessons to each individual student. There is no cookie cutter method for all, we each have our own issues to work on. Some naturally gifted teachers will just tell you to play something and make it work...but since I had to work hard to become successful, I can use what I learned to help you to achieve success. I will help you to build a strong fundamental base and to turn your weaknesses into strengths! Whether you are preparing for school band or ensemble, for honor band auditions, college auditions, or solo and ensemble festivals, I would be happy to help you to become the musician that you want to become.

About Christian
I've been playing brass for over 20 years, and have been teaching for about 20 years as well. I am married, have two young children and two cats. I'm so blessed to have had the opportunities to perform and travel as a musician, and I wouldn't have made it to this point with out the Lord's blessing and without people in my live teaching me, mentoring me, and supporting me. It took a lot of work to get to this point, and if you work hard you can get there too. We all start in the same place, which is, knowing nothing, and we go from there! I would be happy to help you to get there as well.

Currently, I perform as the principal euphonium with the 40th Infantry Division Band of the Army National Guard, the principal euphonium of the Southern California Brass Consortium, and the principal euphonium with the Salvation Army's Western Ter
ritory Staff Band. I also play with my church brass band at the Salvation Army!

I have experience performing as a soloist in San Diego, Los Angeles, Boston, San Francisco, Las Vegas, New Jersey, Atlanta, Seattle, Norway, United Kingdom and most recently Angola. I've also performed in Alaska, Arizona, Denver, New York, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Canada, Mexico, Brazil and Germany. I enjoy playing in almost any medium from Brass Band, Wind Ensemble, Orchestra, Big Band, and even Bavarian Octoberfest Bands. I've also been known to play a little valve trombone in contemporary worship bands, but don't tell any slide trombone players that because they tend to get jealous!

I have a passion for helping people grow and improve as musicians, whether you are 8 years old or 80 years old, or any age. We can all improve and grow!

Christian is a great instructor!

He is patient and he is very thorough. He'll make sure you learn something new every lesson and he will ensure your growth as a musician. Along with teaching me how to play through difficult passages in my music he also taught me breathing techniques, tone quality, and many other great skills! Thanks to him, I was able to win a soloist competition with my bass trombone!

If you ever have a chance, take lessons with Christian and you will not be disappointed!

Tuba, sousaphone, baritone lessons.

About Elli
Hello! My name is Elli.

I am a seasoned, positive, open-minded teacher and, to me, there is nothing more rewarding than to help someone play an instrument, write their first song, and/or otherwise deepen their understanding and love for music.

SOME FACTS ABOUT ME:

- I can play you a Beethoven Sonata and then plunk out the latest Lil Uzi Vert beat. I gotta stay young somehow.

- I can just as easily teach you how to play a Bach Invention for a recital as I can teach you how to play an Alicia Keyes song so you can impress your crush.

- My day job is the greatest- I teach high school music (of many varieties). I'm a 12-
year veteran of the NYCDOE.

- I have a BA in piano (Michigan State University, 2005) and an MA in music education (Northwestern University 2011).

- I am a NYS certified/licensed K-12 Music Educator.

- I have
taught private lessons for more than 20 years! Man I'm old!

- I teach the following lessons: (beginning/intermediate)
Piano (all styles)
Low Brass (baritone and tuba)
Music Theory, Composition, and Arranging

- I teach all ages, but I specialize in teens/adults.

- I am a music theory geek. I enjoy teaching students the rules and then how to break all of them gracefully! I will also happily teach you how to read music (AND play by ear).

- I have a throwback-Jamaican Ska band (not kidding and it's GREAT!). I play brass and arrange the tunes.

- Sometimes I crash local parades with my sousaphone.
